Ballet Side Leg Raise

Ballet Side Leg Raise Exercise

Julie Lohre, IFBB Fitness Pro and Women’s Fitness Expert demonstrates¬†Ballet Side Leg Raises

This ballet inspired move works your hips, glutes, thighs, abdominals as well as your hamstring flexibility. Starting with a Curtsey squat to the side, you’ll raise and kick your leg up and out to the side. Not everyone will be able to kick as high or as tall as I’m demonstrating.
Adding side leg raises to your routine is a great and easy way to strengthen your hips, thighs, and backside. This helps to support your balance, posture, and everyday activities.
If you currently have or have had hip problems, talk to a doctor first before making this exercise part of your fitness routine.
